Foreign Characters & Fonts Vietnamese

Ok, I've manage to embed and read several "other" foreign characters and fonts.
Usually I follow these embedding instructions:TXT.rtf

But now I'm having a hellofa time getting this to work: vpstest.epub

It's Unicode UTF-8 etc. I've added some code to try and make it work. The font is called: VPS Times

The font looks like: Ba nghip lng thanh tnh
And should have accent marks etc.
I've also used TransType Pro to convert the font to a TTF, but I could also convert it to a OTF if it would help.

IDEAS?
Thanks, T

Scratch that,, I figured it out (again).
My file needed a correct:
com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml
and the VPS font needed to be an: OTF

Actually, it could be a TTF as well.
